Gov. Phil Murphy shook hands with state Senate President Steve Swein on Thursday morning and leaned in, calling it a “big victory for the home team.”
Swinny returned the smile, and after a moment the two read to each other for a moment.
They were on the ground floor of a New Jersey wind farm in Salem County, Lower Alice Creek. The pair’s project paved the way for the state as a major coastal wind hub and for the installation and transportation of 900-foot structures required for each ocean wind turbine. The Regional Economic Development Authority estimates that the total construction cost will be between $ 300 million and $ 400 million.
New Jersey has already approved the development of these 30 giant wind turbines, 15 miles off the coast of Cape May County Ocean City. At least two additional wind farms are being developed by the legislature and other states along the east coast.
The Lower Alysis station is intended as a meeting place for the Windmill Tower, which includes a rotor, a machete and a knife. The structures move vertically, are very difficult to transport and must be able to clean power lines and bridges. One of the reasons the remote station in Lower Alice Creek at the mouth of Delaware Bay was chosen, Murphy and Swine.
But Congressman John Burzzi Lee Lee, who represents the Third Legislature, along with senators Adam Taliaferro and Swine, all senators in the Senate, gave some insight into how hard the battle is to open the port.
“We did not come here by accident,” he told a crowd of about 100 outside the PSEG Nuclear Hope Creek plant, which is being built at the port of Berz Cheli. “This did not just happen from heaven. At times, they even got together in a fight.
“But it happened together. Some of these meetings were uncomfortable. And some of the words exchanged are less than four letters. But they were effective. It was a language that broke international barriers. ”
The Danish power company has won approval to build the Osted Ocean Winds 1 and 2, while another company has been awarded a license for the Atlantic Shares project. Ocean Wind II and the Atlantic coast were approved by the Public Utilities Board in July. The projects are expected to generate 2,658 megawatts of clean energy by 2029. The approval is the largest ever wind farm project in the country and has more than tripled the commitment of Paradise State to a growing industry.
Ocean Wind I, which was approved in 2019 and will start operating in 2024, will generate 1,100 megawatts of electricity.
All projects promise to use the New Jersey wind port and the Paulbor port, which will bring the turbines to monopoly. That port, along the lower Alysis Creek from the Dalai Lama, as well as in the provinces of Suez, Burzecheli, and Italy, began to be rebuilt many years ago to accommodate such heavy loads.
“People from all over the world understand.
Federal Department of Labor Section. Marty Walsh was also in his hands on Thursday. Hailing the project workers’ agreement for the use of port workers, President Joe Biden said he would support alternative energy pressures in New Jersey and that congressional funding would help support such projects.
The state has generated more than 3,700 megawatts of future energy from offshore wind, enough to power an estimated 1.5 million homes according to the BPU. The two projects are expected to create 7,000 new jobs and generate $ 3.5 billion in benefits for the New Jersey economy.
Construction on the wind farm is expected to begin this year and begin operations no later than 2024, according to government news.
